In Rio de Janeiro for Rio+20

The next couple of days will be an experiment.

I am in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for a few days covering Rio+20 for SEI. I will tweet and write blogposts about the conference, so it’s a nice jaunt into journalism for me and very different from my usual work. My presence at Rio+20 is broader than just trade and environment issues and will cover many aspects of climate change and sustainable development.

My main event schedule looks as written out below for the next couple of days. I’ll be writing about all these here, as well as on the “experience” of Rio+20 more generally. The ones below are the events SEI has helped organize and are involved in so naturally they will be  my focus. However, I do plan to also engage with as many interesting other events as I can during my time here.

(See also my twitter livefeeds from these events – @JohanWestberg is my brand new Twitter account.)

Sustainable Development in the Face of Rapid Climate Change: High Alpine Region

Greetings from Brazil!
